According to American Apparel, Nylons, yes those stretchy leg coverings that we have made a mainstay in our wardrobe, turns 70 this year, and in celebration of the ubiquitous legging, AA has launched an anniversary collection of 10 new styles and 34 colors. My dibs are on the opaque pantyhose in midnight blue to wear with the season's multitude of floral dresses. Taking the anniversary a step further AA enlisted the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company to perform a mini dance recital featuring their tights. Very cool. Would love to see this make it to the TV screen. It is clever enough to rival the Gap and Old Navy's brilliant and very colorful (no pun intended) media campaigns.
